Subject: One of Ryan and the Cards best shows
EVER!! Wow! I wish I'd been a fan of them back then, I'd have seen them at the Norva! What a night that must have been. Great song choices and A1 performances by Ryan and the Cardinals. I highly recommend this show to anyone doubting that Ryan is one of the best live performers.

Subject: Keep standing strong
This one does it fer me. Many folks like the sit down mellowness shows and so do I......I'm a drummer , You play git box, you stand. Hell, I would rather stand and sing. If you ain't Doc Watson stand up and play. They certainly do on this one. I miss this band. As for the lyric flub on a Dead cover after 30 yr's on that train this was nuttin!!!
Thanks for a spectacular upload!

Subject: Who cares about lyric changes
People, remember it's about peace and love! Jerry won't care about the lyrics: he was never an elitist like some Dead Heads are these days. It's all about the music playing the band. I saw plenty of great Dead shows where Jerry and Bob both screwed up the lyrics or chords or song list.

This is great show, the perfect Sunday groove (despite the political crap). The band is just right that night; the crowd is totally involved and appreciative, and the sound board is so clean you can hear stage chatter.

Download and enjoy!!!

Subject: Don't Forget the Lyrics
For someone who is clearly heavily influenced by Jerry Garcia and who covers the Dead a lot, Adams sure seems to forget their lyrics and/or butcher aspects of their songs. How can it be a great version of "He's Gone" (which has become a tribute to Jerry since his passing) when he forgets a verse? When I realized how much the band played like the Dead I was expecting much bigger things from his covers.
